‘The Wall Street Journal’ on FIRE and IUPUI

By July 7, 2008

The July 7 edition of The Wall Street Journal prominently features a column about the disturbing case of student-employee Keith John Sampson at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis. In May, FIRE reported that Sampson had been cleared of charges of "racial harassment" for reading a book at work that celebrated the defeat of the Ku Klux Klan by Notre Dame students in a 1924 street brawl. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Dorothy Rabinowitz prominently mentions FIRE’s role in her story about Sampson’s case and its aftermath.
